You can also combine search operators… for instance, if I wanted to find all emails I’d sent to myself with attachments, I’d use the following:
And there’s my document… here’s the search operators that I use on a daily basis:
|from:geek||Finds all messages from “geek”|

|hasattachments:true||Finds all messages with attachments|
|read:no||Finds all unread messages|
